Richness and concentration | 94 points | Huon Hooke- Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Blend 2020

Author: Huon Hooke
Review Date: Apr 2022

Medium to deep ruby colour with purple tinges. The bouquet is oaky and pungent, with some camphor and mint-eucalypt forest overtones, the palate a bit rasping and astringent when first poured, with the flavours turning to polished leather, red fruits lurking largely obscured beneath. It needs time to mellow and soften. There is richness and concentration here, and a very long carry. (52% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot, 24% cabernet franc)
